Roll, roll cotton boll

I put my Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll on because I was going to do Baptist fans all over and it would be fast.  What happened???????  The quilt started shouting that it did not want an all -over.  Am I the only one that has the quilt change your mind on how it will be quilted????? 
So what was going to be a "quickie" is now going very s-l-o-w.  I've been working all morning and this is all I have:
Not even one-half of the border is done.  Still waiting to see what the quilt says on what to do between the half circles and the edge. 
I hope my next quilt has laryngitis!

Eye Candy

Here is my niece, Paula's kaleidoscope:
Love the white surrounding the kaleidoscope!  Fun to quilt.
And Deb's BOM:
I'm ready to do my BOM now.  I have all the pieced blocks made but haven't made the log cabins.  They are cut and ready to go.  Just need to sit down and sew!!  This was a BOM from The Country  Store (I think that was the name), In Lebanon, TN.  in 2012 and 2013. 
This year Deb and I are doing a BOM that we bought when we were in Wisconsin from JJ Stitches.  Actually, it is four blocks per month!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR & Look back on 2013

Reflections back on Quilting 2013.
I finished 17 of my quilts -- bound, washed, and ready to use!!!!
And I bought 102.25 yards of fabric!!
Used 212.75 yards of fabric!!!  Yeh!
Which means my stash has diminished by 110.5 yards!!!!!
What is so sad is that I can't tell that any has been used.  I think fabric breeds like rabbits and multiples while we sleep.  Either that or there is a fabric fairy that doesn't want us to ever run out of fabric and replenishes our supply nightly!!!

2014 is not starting well -- It is January 1 and I just purchased 14 yards of fabric on the internet!!! But it for backgrounds so I can diminish my stash even further.  Does that excuse fly?????
I leave you with this little cartoon.  Hope no one got "plowed" last night!
